Complete genome sequence of Lactobacillus plantarum ZJ95, a potential probiotic strain producing bacteriocins and B-group vitamin riboflavin.

Authors: Li, Ping and Gu, Qing

Lactobacillus plantarum ZJ95 is a potential probiotic isolated from newborn infant fecal and it is identified to produce riboflavin with great antimicrobial activity. The complete genome sequence of this strain was reported in the present study. The genome contains a 3,261,418-bp chromosome and two plasmids. Genes, related to the biosynthesis of bacteriocins and riboflavin, were identified. This work will facilitate to reveal the biosynthetic mechanism of bacteriocins and B-group vitamins in lactic acid bacteria and provide evidence for its potential application in food industry.
